My best friends older brother is remembered by all the things in his room as we grew older! It was a great neighborhood with all ages being together playing sports and always helping each other! Praying for your family’s loss and comfort to each one. Tommy Brown, February 23, 2021 I feel blessed to have had David in my life, as a part of my family. David was a giving person with a heart of kindness. What he gave most was joy to others. He loved to laugh, spend time with family and friends, and appreciated the good things of life. I remember as a child looking up to my older cousin, he was patient with us younger kids. In later years he was my Dad's buddy, and Mom's faith companion, during enjoyable visits with Uncle Herbert and Aunt Gerry. David loved connecting with relatives and sharing stories at the Blaschke reunions, which he helped organize. His online posts made me smile - he obviously treasured his own children and grandchildren, his church, the Boy Scouts, and many friends. He left them a legacy of love and commitment. I offer my condolences to David's family and friends, and share the pain of your loss. David will be remembered with affection. May God bless you with His peace, and the knowledge that David is at home in heaven. Much love from David's cousin, Lana Blaschke Rockstroh. Lana Rockstroh, December 13, 2020 I am sorry for your loss. I have a lot of good memories of our days in troop 32 and Worth Ranch. Hugh

Donna & family, I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your brother. My prayers are with you and your family. My God bless you all.
Art Allis, December 9, 2020 All of us at AirBorn were deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our co-worker's father David. We are thinking of you all during this time of loss. We extend our deepest condolences to each of you and may you find comfort in knowing that we care. Sincerely, The AirBorn Family (Co-workers of David Blaschke Jr.) Beverly Arellano, December 9, 2020 To the Blaschke Family: Condolences on your loss, I was classmates with Donna and indirectly met most of your family at different Nolan functions. Once again, deepest sympathies on your loss. Joe A Narviz, December 8, 2020 I first met Dave 6 years ago when my son joined Troop 295 and he helped me learn more about the scouting program and the history of the Troop that he started. Everything he did in scouts was for the boys and they all respected his knowledge. He was the adult lead for the Troops "Eagles Nest" and as such he met with the older scouts once a month and helped guide them through the final requirements on their journey to get the Eagle Rank. The troop will definitely be poorer with his passing. Cameron Austin, December 8, 2020 David was a great man, father and grandfather. I always enjoyed talking to him at family gatherings and enjoyed his company. His daughter and grandchildren adored him. He will be sorely missed. May he Rest In Peace. Arthur Mahoney, December 8, 2020 I have been friends with Dave since the 7th grade and was saddened greatly to hear about his condition and passing. Over the years we stayed in contact via our Nolan Alumni group....Dave was a big part of that and was a big part of the motivation to have so many fun events. He was loved by all...always a great guy to be around and visit. He was an incredible guy....he helped countless young men through the Boy Scouts program and he loved his family beyond words. We had a lot of great experiences in our childhood and we enjoyed reminiscing about those days when we got together. I will miss him. My condolences to all his family and friends! John Lunt, December 7, 2020 You will be missed! Hugs and prayers for all of the family! Cheryl Strittmatter Ablon, December 7, 2020
